“We need immediate, bipartisan action to protect people and help slow climate change," said Bill Lee, Senior Vice President of Policy, Advocacy and Government Affairs at The Trust for Public Land. "Smart policy that embraces nature as a climate solution is integral to any comprehensive approach to improve climate mitigation and resilience. This bill shows us how to use trees to do just that, removing carbon from the air, reforesting fire-scarred landscapes, and creating jobs. I am encouraged to see this bipartisan legislation introduced in both the House and Senate and look forward to advancing this critical policy.”
